That's a little out of my programming reach. Maybe someone else with
some filesystem coding experience would like to take a stab at it.
Maybe as a userjob 4.
Personally, I prefer to organize my cards myself. I have some shows I
like to watch as soon as I can (Jericho), some I like to watch once a
day or so (Star Trek TNG), and some I like to watch when the mood hits
me (Mysteries of the Deep, Deep Sea Detectives). I only have to swap
files around once or twice a week.
